Johnny is a new and exciting Irish musician who is bringing guitar back into pop music echoing artists such as Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and most predominantly John Mayer. His backgrounds range from classical to musical theatre and it is this eclectic range that he attributes to his expressive style.
Citing emotive songwriters like John Mayer, Bruce Springsteen, Ben Rector, and Ryan Hurd as his biggest influences, he wants to write songs with strong directive focus:
When I listen to a song I want to be moved; I want to be consumed by the lyrics, the melody, and the story. These are the kind of songs that make me want to listen to music and these are the songs that I want to write. If one of my songs doesn’t move me then how could I expect it to move others?
In summer 2019, Johnny linked up with London producer Jackson Dimiglio-Wood (Shawn Mendes). Jackson’s sophisticated programming married with Johnny’s chic melodies and catchy guitar hooks result in tunes that are uniquely up lifting and dynamic.
There are some exciting announcements in store for this young artist and his music will be sure to make heads turn.
